NFL teams have been limited to meeting with prospects by phone or teleconference because of restrictions on in-person visits put in place by the league stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. 

Hurts meeting with the Cowboys would seem to suggest the team is interested in selecting him at some point in the draft.

Dak Prescott is still their starting quarterback, but Dallas had to place the franchise tag on him last month since the two sides have been unable to reach a long-term contract agreement. 

Hurts finished second in the Heisman voting last season with the Sooners. The Texas native threw for 3,851 yards, ran for 1,298 yards and had 52 total touchdowns in 14 games.
